How to apply for a Town and Gown property?

After viewing any of our properties you can apply by downloading and completing an application form before submitting it to our Letting office along with references.

Let’s get started!

If you wish to view any of our properties, arranging an appointment through us is not necessary. Due to data protection, we are unable to give out the current tenants’ contact details. Accordingly, we ask that you visit the property and make arrangements with the current tenant for a mutually convenient time to view.

If you wish to be considered for the tenancy of the property viewed please complete our application form, using the following link: Student Application Form

A first and second choice is recommended to avoid disappointment. Please then attach ALL references.

Required Documentation

  • Completed Parental Guarantor Form from a parent or guardian – available here: Parental Guarantor form
  • Current Landlord/warden reference
  • Character Reference (from an appropriate person who has known you for a number of years e.g. lecturer, teacher, former employer)
  • All successful applicants will be required to produce ID in the form of a driving licence or passport.

Rental Payments

The first payment of rent is due prior to the date of entry. Please ensure you set up your standing order allowing 4 working days before the rental due date in order for funds to reach our account for payment on time. We are unable to issue keys for properties where rent is still outstanding.

Please remember the rent does not include utilities and it is essential you take this into account when planning your budget.

I have known Mike Foote for 10 years during which time he has done sterling service as Letting Agent for over half a dozen Properties in the St Andrews area, on my behalf.
It is no surprise to me that Town and Gown consistently comes out as the most popular Letting Agent in the Town and 'Twal mile roon'.
